I've been reading the M3 forums and it seems this is a real issue for them. For us it could be worse because our tires are stickier. Many of the M3 guys with spacers have extended clearbra coverage. Niko1414 has already reported a rock chip issue, and he has stock offsets.
Here's a quote from an M3 owner.
What are your thoughts on this?
+1, I have had the H&Rs on for 3k miles and I have had very little problems with rock chips.(no clear bra) My car is flawless, One on my back trunk, 2 on the front bumper, and none on the sideskirts, all I've fixed.(And I drive the hell out of her) The stance is still perfect for me and very aggressive even without spacers. For now I don't think its worth it.
